Keep Everything On-Site, In-Sight: Nothing Makes It Easier than an Enterprise-wide Real-time Location System


In this twenty minute session, attendees will learn how real-time location systems (RTLS) will benefit your facility's bottom line by increasing its resource visibility enterprise-wide.  With the ability to map each resource location, monitor resource status, measure resource utilization and improve resource processes, RTLS provides more than just a financial  ROI -- one that has to do with nurses and clinical support staff and not taking away from their ability to care.




Speaker:


George Sun, Vice President of Sales, Awarepoint Corporation




During the conference, Awarepoint will be exhibiting its real-time location solutions (RTLS) and outlining the benefits to clinical technology professionals that boost their own performance as well as that of their hospital organization.  Demonstrations at the booth will showcase the Skytron Asset Manager, powered by Awarepoint, and discuss how location awareness can impact financial and clinical outcomes with a high and quick return on investment (ROI).




Both Awarepoint and Skytron executives will be available in Booth #614 during exhibit hours. Expo attendees that register at the booth will be eligible for the hottest giveaway on the show floor – a chance to win a $1,500 Starbucks adrenaline rush gift card.
